According to the Business Wire, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) recently launched an independent, not-for-profit corporation offering industry innovative options and flexibility in standards development. The new Industry Standards and Technology Organization provides a forum for post-development standards activities including marketing, accreditation, certification, branding, and conformity assessment. The new organization is an affiliate to the existing IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA). Together, these organizations enable IEEE to offer an unprecedented level of choice through a menu of standards activities and services.

The IEEE Industry Standards and Technology Organization provides a new infrastructure under which development processes and related activities can be tailored to the technology, market, and participants. Through the close organizational connection to the IEEE-SA full consensus process, the new organization will also permit industry groups to accelerate entry into that process.
